A very Merry Un-birthday indeed...

I just KNEW you ladies would like an invitation to this special birthday / un-birthday party...
*squeal* i have never seen such a perfect party tea in all my days... ...to begin at the beginning, any 'Alice' fan would see that the Wonderland references are abundant. A Birthday tea for my Mummy, at which no 'tea' was actually served and alot of place swapping occurred.

Flowers from the meadow, tea cups and tea pots, sleepy doormice, cakes and sandwiches...
Cuddles and thankyou's (my mum hugging my pregnant Sister-in-law)
Oooohhh the FUN we had! My Sister and my Brother - his wife and our children, all enjoying the sunshine on Thursday like it was a Summers Day. Putting up the Gazebo - filling sandwiches - hanging the bunting... it was just magic!


Of course, ever the opportunist to display my bunting (tutorial on Alice bunting to follow soon...)
The flowers, the sunshine... these photos are lovely but i seem to have missed so much of the 'detail'.

A shadowy *fish* snapped by mt Sister setting the table (and sneaking the bubbly that i had already secretly opened in the garage, Sshhh)


AND, as if that wasn't gluttony enough... we are surprising my mum in (*checks watch*) 6hrs time with a surprise lunch out with 40 of her friends... THEN we have invited 80 people over to HER house tonight for a "Mad Hatters Cocktail Party"!! why are we so extreme in our family?
You can see why i have been a little busy my friends x
I might be sober enough to photograph a few Mad Hats tonight too....
I am expecting one or two White Rabbit costumes and i sooooo want to show you my outfit...
... Hey, a VERY merry Un-Birthday to us all x x x x x x
